seats
By REID TUCKER
Paxton Town Council
members Bobby Kemp
and Jenice Armstrong
retained their places
on the board following
city electiotis held ear-
lier this month, though
total voter turnout was
on the low side.
Only 182 votes (in-
cluding absentee votes)
were cast in the city
election on Aug. 14,
with 76 going the way
of Armstrong, 66 for
Kemp and 40 for their
opponent, former coun-
cil member Bill McRae,
who ran for a seat again
-after not being reelected
last year. The Council
voted unanimously at
its regularly scheduled
meeting on Tuesday,
Aug. 21, to validate
these results.
City Ordinance 12-
01 was adopted by the
Council following the
ordinance's second pub-
lic reading. The ordi-
nance, which has been
in the works for the
past several months,
prohibits sex offenders
and, convicted sexual
predators from entering
city parks, including
the Dixie Youth League
baseball complex, un-
der penalty of a second-
degree misdemeanor.
The language of the
ordinance is based on
Florida Statutes..

voted unanimously to

KEN LITTLE, liaison for the Matrix Design Group and the Haas Center speaks to attendees at the
DeFuniak Springs Community Center with Matrix Vice President Celeste Werner about the SAS and
recommendations for cooperation between local bases, residents as well as county and city governments.



Small Area Study doesn't


see many changes


By ALICIA LEONA-RD
In today's economic
landscape, the military
plays a large supporting
role in area economies.
Cities and counties woo
and vie over military
operations and bases,
hoping to lure families
and a needed income
flow to their area.
This past Thursday
afternoon, Aug. 23, rep-
resentatives from the
Matrix Design Group,
in association with the
Haas Center, present--
ed information for the
Tri-County Small Area
Study (SAS) conducted
on behalf of Walton,
Okaloosa and Santa
Rosa counties to a small
group of citizens, real-
estate brokers and civic
leaders. The SAS was
partially built on the
information gleaned in
2009 by.the Eglin joint-
land use study as well
as public input.
SVice President of the
Matrix Group Celeste
Werner started out by
reassuring the group
the study had nothing


to do with eminent do-
main or the purchase
of property or expand-
ing the base. "Let me
start by saying the Air,
Force is not in the land
purchasing business
nor are they seeking to
expand the base here at
Eglin in any way. These
.studies were done in
order to find ways that
cities, counties, and
even residents can help
keep the lines of com-
munications open with
local government enti-
ties and the base."
Werner went on to
explain that with the
heated competition for
bases and the economic
dollars they bring to a
community, communi-
cations with Eglin and
knowing what they
needed to continue to
do their jobs as well
as what residents and
business owners needed
in the community made
the study a good idea
and actually brought
about recommendations
for very small changes
in the future that would


still have to go though
the regular route of the
county or city to get ap-
proval. "Everything, all
building plans and such
that are already in pro-
cess would be grandfa-
thered in if the county
decided to go with these
recommendations and
That is all,they are, rec-
ommendations. Each
area will have to decide
whether they want to
include them or not in
their planning," Werner
added.
Most of the higher
level noise issues are
already and will be con-
tained over the base in
Okaloosa. Most flights
that train in Walton
or approach the base
from Walton are prop
or rotary planes, which
normally fly slower and
make less noise.
A few items that
were discussed were
the limits on building
heights in approach
areas, low pressure so-
dium and downward or
cut-off lighting as well
as sound guidelines,


residential density and
real estate disclosures.
Eglin and other lo-
cal bases bring a lot to
the table in northwest
Florida, according to
the study numbers. The
bases are estimated to.
have a $5.2 billion im-
pact in the economic
area and 35.percent of
Northwest Florida's re-
gional output is from
defense spending. An
estimated %57 percent
qf Okaloosa's economy
is driven by local bases
and up to 15 percent of
Walton economics are
driven by base and mili-
tary family spending.
The SAS meetings
have been ongoing since
April 2011 and are wel-
coming public input
until Sept. 21, 2012.
Then, a series of public
hearings will be held
and it will be up to the
appropriate entities as
to whether or not they
adopt the recommenda-
tions. The final draft of
recommendations are

Donnie Richardson
was named Walton
County's 2012 Agri-
cultural Innovator of
the Year. Farm Credit
along with University
of Florida IFAS Exten-
sion, teamed up to show-
case innovative farmers
from 13 counties in the
Panhandle of Florida.
Walton County was
represented well with
the Richardson fam-
ily. The Richardsons
have been ag innova-
tors for years, working
cooperatively with the
Extension team, as well
as, shining in their citi-
zenship and leadership
in promoting agricul-
ture in Walton County.
On Friday, Aug. 17, the
Richardson family was
awarded a plaque at the
Northwest Florida 2012
Agricultural Innova-
tor of the Year Awards
Luncheon at the Jay
Community Center, in


Jay, Fla.
Richardson is a lo-
cal farmer and rancher
in Walton County who
raises row crops, live-
stock, and pine trees.
The Richardson fam-
ily has been proactive
when it comes to imple-
menting new technol-
ogy and equipment into
their operation. Donnie
Richardson has been
featured in the maga-
zine Southern Farmer
numerous times for his
innovations in farm-
ing. The Richardsons
were the first ones in
the area to do strip-till
farming, using a four-
row and six-row peanut
picker. On some of their
land they have center
pivot low pressure irri-
gation. Fertilizer is ap-
plied through their ir-
rigation system to help
with efficiency. GPS
guidance systems have
been installed on their
tractors for navigat-
ing the tractors on plot

services. Rabren, Odom,
Pierce & Hayes won the
open bidding process
with a bid of $12,300
for the year's services,
which is an increase of
$100 over last year.
The remainder of new
business on the agenda
included updates from
both the Walton County
Economic Development
Alliance's (WCEDA)
Scarlett Phaneuf and
the Walton Area Cham-
ber of Commerce's
Mitzie Graff. Graff said
the Chamber is commit-
ted to helping Paxton,
which she called "one
of the best-kept secrets
in Walton County," to
grow. Phaneuf gave
the Council an update
on the ongoing Dollar
General project, saying
that the packet contain-
ing the revised agree-
ment between the city
and Teramore Develop-
ment, LLC, the project's
land developer, would
be submitted.for Dollar
General's final approval
no later than Aug. 29.
The Council also used


the opportunity renew
the city's annual agree-
ment with the WCEDA
for a fee of $1,000.
The meeting also
featured much discus-
sion of old business, the
majority of which came
from City Attorney Lori
Bytell, who received ap-
proval from the Council
to proceed with draw-
ing up several new ordi-
nances related to public
works. The Council vot-
ed 5-0 to authorize the
creation of an ordinance
for a well-head protec-
tion plan, another to
update the interlocal
agreement between the
city and Walton County
for the purpose of secur-
ing a state grant to be
used for a water system
update, and another to
enable county and city
workers to work to-
gether outside Paxton
city limits. That final
ordinance requires that
the city's boundaries be
defined along with the
boundaries of unincor-
porated Walton Coun-
ty, as city water crews
are not allowed to work


more than five miles
outside the city limits,
Bytell said.
Mayor Hayward
Thomas informed the
Council of an offer from
Walton County's De-
partment of Parks and
Recreation to install a
"splash pad" at the Pax-
ton Dixie Youth League
baseball complex at no
cost to the city. Thomas
tried for at least two
years to secure one of
the watery play areas
for the park, but the
funds were not avail-
able until now. The
Council approved the
county's offer, according
to which the city will
pay the water bill after
the splash pad, valued
at $1,000, is installed
by county workers.
Finally, the Council
set Friday, Sept. 28, as
the date for the final
budget workshop be-
fore the tentative Fiscal
Year 2013 budget is ap-
proved. The workshop
will be held at Town
Hall at 1 p.m. The pub-
lic is invited to attend.

City of DeFuniak Springs introduces utility discount incentive


The city of DeFuniak
Springs recently ap-
proved a re-occupancy
based utility discount
program for properties
that are within their
service territory. Sara
- Bowers, city manager,
was inspired by the Gulf
Power Re-Occupancy
Incentive which grants
a one-time payment to
eligible businesses that
occupy eligible vacant
buildings, and began to
put together options for
the City Council to con-


sider.
"After the launch
of the Gulf Power pro-
gram, I reached out
to the Walton County
Economic Development
Alliance to brainstorm
ideas that could fos-
ter business develop-
ment in the DeFuniak
Springs area and help
to reduce blight and
community, safety con-
cerns," said Bowers.
The city incen-
tive offers businesses
that move into vacant


buildings within their
service territory for
natural gas, garbage
collection, water, and
sewer a discount of up
to 20 percent on their
utility bill for the first
year of occupancy. Dis-
counts will vary based
on the length of time
the building has been
vacant, the number of
new jobs created by the
business, average wag-
es of the new jobs, and
the operating industry
of the business.


"The goal was to de-
velop an incentive that
is both fiscally feasible
for the City, and helps
to attract private sec-
tor investment and jobs
particularly in those
buildings that have
been vacant for an ex-
tended period of time,"
continued Bowers.

The Walton County
Economic Development
Alliance is a non-profit
corporation created to

The


Not-So-Great


Outdoors


By BRUCE COLLIER

Maybe I'm just a little blue about Neil Arm-
strong's passing (I never lost my admiration for
this old-school hero and fellow Ohioan), but the
news seems to be full of depressing items, more
than usual. I don't mean the approaching political
conventions, or, as I like to think of them, audi-
tions.
It's nature. Some guy got himself killed by a
bear in Alaska's Denali National Park. Apparently
the man, out alone, had been photographing the
bear for some seven minutes before the grizzly
came over and attacked him. The superintendent
of the park said that the bear killed the photog-
rapher, then dragged him into the bushes and
"fed on him for a period of time." The bear, a 600-
pound male, was shot. Park policy is to kill bears
who have killed people and "identified them as a
food source." Seems like a pretty good policy to me,
though the park's "bear awareness training" pro-
gram (I swear that's what they call it) didn't do its
job in this case. It's tragic, and I feel bad for the
man and his family, but seven minutes is a long
time to stand there clicking away at 600 pounds of
something whose Latin name is Ursus arctos hor-
ribilis.
OK, that guy had a permit and presumably
knew there was a risk going into the deep coun-
try, though he was unarmed. But what about the
two people who have succumbed to a "rare, rodent-
borne" disease, hantavirus, at Yellowstone Na-
tional Park? It seems .that the virus is transmit-
ted through exposure to urine, droppings or saliva
of infected rodents. Ironically, the people exposed
may have been staying in "Signature. Tent Cabins,"
a more upscale version of the average tent cabin.
-Somewhere, Theodore Roosevelt is shaking his
head, muttering "I told them so...." TR wouldn't
have been caught dead (or alive) sleeping in any-
thing called a signature tent cabin. And a visit to
his study at Sagamore Hill will show you exactly
how he handled impertinent grizzly bears:
A little closer to home is our first tropical storm
scare of the season, Isaac. He was headed .this
way, and this area jumped quickly into prepara-
tions. Then he turned off toward New Orleans. I
read that the people are busy making preparations
there, laboring under the shadow of Hurricane Ka-
trina (whose seven-year anniversary is Labor Day
weekend). Will there be a repeat? I also read that
the city is still rebuilding after Katrina. This I
don't get. New York had the Twin Towers cleaned
up eight months after 9/11.
George W. Bush is no longer president, so "the
Republican administration hates New Orleans"
argument is pretty stale now. I hope New Orleans
fares well, I really do. But I lived in the Crescent
City for 10 years, and bad things have a way of
repeating themselves there.
And finally, some guy in Montana got himself
hit by cars twice while disguised in camo gear
in an attempt to fabricate a roadside Bigfoot sight-
ing. He died, as did his dreams of...whatever. So
far there's been no statement from the real Sas-
quatch, but if I were in his big shoes, I'd distance
myself from this, pronto.
Stay safe, even if it means staying indoors. Re-
member, Yogi was only a cartoon character.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 2012


Editor:
I was assigned to Redstone Arsenal, Ala., as
a missile radar instructor 57 years ago,. I was a
private in the Army and that assignment was the
start of an interesting 20-year career. Being raised
in New England, I was labeled a yankee by south-
ern folk. I had a perception of southern people that
was developed through books, newspapers, and
national news. media. I pictured white and black
people as disliking one another throughout the
south.
One of the first things I did after my arrival
was to get my vehicle serviced. There was a black
gentleman in front of me at the service manager's
desk. I was surprised to see both men treating
each other with mutual respect and courtesy. As
time went on, I realized that what I had perceived
about the South was totally in error. Friendships
developed based on merit from daily contact and
not race or religion.
During the demonstration days of the Martin
Luther King years, non-southerners thought that
people were demonstrating every day in all cities
and towns in the south. That idea was developed
through national-television nightly news. Members
of my large family lived in the North. I went home
most summers to visit them. Several times during
those visits, I was asked, "Those demonstrations
must be terrible?" That person was amazed when I
said I had never seen one.


I credit the national news media with the tur-
moil across the nation during the Vietnam War.
All news was slanted against U.S. military activi-
ties in Vietnam. The Tet offensive in 1968 was per-
haps the worst example. The North Vietnamese
army staged a coordinated attack against allied
forces in the south. They were successful in mak-
ing it a surprise attack. However, after less than
a month of severe fighting, the enemy lost nearly
as many troops as the U.S. did during 12 years of
that war. The people at home thought we lost that
offensive through slanted news coverage. General
Westmoreland, the senior commander in Vietnam
was outraged.
Most people think the Civil War caused hard
feelings between northern and southern people in
the United States. Once again, that is a misconcep-
tion. Both armies had great respect for each other.
The hard feelings developed due to the northern
S policies after the war. The administrators, called
Carpetbaggers, went out of their way to insult
southerners during reconstruction.
In my opinion, the Civil war was the most tragic.
Approximately 625,000 Americans were killed in
that war. After living in the South for more than
a half century, many of my dearest friends are
southerners and my wife and I love our new home-
town, Ruston, Louisiana.

Editor:
Rest in peace Neil Armstrong.
I've always felt sorry for the life Neil Armstrong
was given to live. Born in the small town of Wa-
pakoneta Ohio, he grew up just wanting to fly. In-
spired by a trip in a Ford Trimotor with his father
when he was six, he famously had his pilot's license
before his driver's license. Just like all good boys'
in Ohio, that are not Catholic, he went to Purdue,
matriculating in the nascent field of aerospace en-
gineering. He was drafted into the Navy where he
became a naval aviator and flew photoreconnais-
sance over Korea.
He went back to school after being released by
the Navy, fell in love, got married, received his
graduate degree, went to Edwards Air Force base
and became what all young boys who grew up in the
jet age wanted to be, a "Test Pilot." This is where
things started going south. At some point while at
Edwards he came to the attention of a middle aged
man in a brown suit, his pockets full of govern-
ment money. He became part of a small coterie of
pilots who called themselves "Astronauts." He rode
the centrifuge, heard the roar of the Atlas, and was
told by Dr. Von Braun to call him William.
We are told it was pure chance that he was
picked to be the first man to set foot upon the
moon, but if you study his fellow astronauts you
quickly realize he was the obvious choice. Collins
was the nerd you got to help you with calculus as a
freshman at college, and Buzz Aldrin was, well you

Subj: Fed-up still and more than ever
1. The American People and Christians are fed-
up with self serving elected officials from the lo-
cal to national level. Those of the older generation
know better and realize they can no longer remain
silent. We are now in great danger ourselves and

Editor:
After the Aug. 14 BCC meeting, I am more con-
fused than ever. We have a TDC with bulging cof-
fers, somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 million
dollars. We have a project that simply needs to be
done, improving the bike path in two sections over
Western Lake. And, the TDC seems consistently
resistant to supporting and funding this project. I
just don't get it!
I live surrounded by rental properties. As this
past tourist season winds down, I recall vehicle af-
ter vehicle transporting bicycles for use on their
vacations. Anyone that has driven down 30A, has
surely encountered bicycles perilously riding over
those two narrow bridges. The scariest times are
when those bicyclists are ridden by small children
wearing helmets.


know, Buzz. Armstrong was the perfect choice, or
at least they thought so. A tall good looking small
town boy, soft spoken, and humble, he was the
space age equivalent of Gary Cooper. In reality he
was deeply flawed for what NASA wanted. He was
uncomfortable in front of the public and showed
almost no emotion or charisma. He tried, he posed
for the pictures and went to the press conferenc-
.es, but he never looked at ease. We the public, of
course, forgave him his short comings, heck; this
was going to be the first man on the moon. What
he lacked we manufactured in our minds and his
boyish profile sure looked great on the cover of Life
or on the flip side of a commemorative coin. This
would have all been okay except that occasionally
at an interview or public appearance you saw a
look in his eye that seemed to say, "I wish I was
back in the F-9 flying recon over the Yalu River.
On his return from the moon he became the sad
man he was to be the rest of his life. Look at him
at the press conference that was held after the as-
tronauts were released from quarantine. The three
astronauts sit there looking like a picture of the
Politburo. Watch him with President Clinton on
the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the moon
landing. He makes the odd analogy of being like a
parrot and you can almost see the heartbreak and
tragedy of his confession. One almost expects him
to say, "I never wanted this, I just wanted to fly!"

eration has the responsibility to warn everyone by
all technological means now available. No excuse
is acceptable.
3. Let's do all possible before the door of oppor-
tunity is closed forever. The blessings to be gained
are eternal. Let's all pray and do as the Holy Spirt
leads quickly and without doubt and unbelief.


William B. Webster
New Harmony Community


So now, although TDCs in other communities
have used bed tax funds in connection with multi-
use and other paths, a request has been made to
get an additional opinion from the State Attorney
General. The reason given, so Walton County won't
get sued. Sued by whom...the bed tax collectors?
Really? Now maybe there's something I am miss-
ing, but shouldn't Walton County and the TDC
be more worried about the public safety of those
tourists bicycling, running or walking across those
bridges! When an accident occurs, there will be a
lawsuit accompanying the unnecessary tragedy.
This project seems to have the support of the com-
munity and seems to be a no-brainer as a tourist
enhancement, so why not just get it done already?

Editor:
Regarding the South Walton Annex security
plan reported 8/23 in the Beach Breeze, I wish to
point out that high-tech frisking of taxpayers en-
tering the premises is not a deterrent to the types
of shootings mentioned by Sheriff Adkinson in
justifying the new security system. And some of
us believe that taxpayers entering official build-
ings deserve substantial measures of respect and
thanks for paying for the buildings and for provid-
ing salaries to those employed therein. Attitudes
of gratitude from county officials likely would at-
tenuate the "rancor, vitriole, and hyperbole" that
the sheriff claims to have observed at commission
meetings. Further it appears that two full-time
deputies man the security system at the main


courthouse and the same can be expected at the
annex. If the sheriffs budget contains excess funds
enough to purchase and implement this new sys-
tem then perhaps those funds can be made avail-
able to better uses. Serious consideration can be
given to dismantling the system in place at the
main courthouse. Visit some of the fine old laid-
back Alabama courthouses for comparisons of visi-
tor experience. Ben Franklin warned about giving
up freedom for security and some of us dislike being
perennially frisked for paying taxes or conducting
other routine courthouse business--especially as a
hyped deterrent to statistically low threats.

Shelter House receives grant to


continue community financial education


In the midst of this
economic crunch, learn-
ing how to save and
wisely spend is more
important than ever.
With that in mind, Shel-
ter House, the domestic
violence center serving
Okaloosa and Walton
counties, is continuing
its financial education
and economic empower-

to a grant for $36,000


from The Allstate Foun-

first received this grant
in 2009 and has earned
recognition from other
domestic violence cen-
ters for its innovative
programs.

"Domestic violence
survivors are often the
victims of financial
abuse as well," said Mi-
chelle Sperzel, execu-


tive director of Shelter
House. "The abuser
might have restricted
her access to money, ru-
ined her credit, forbid-
den her to work or even
harassed her on the job
causing a spotty work
history."
The grant funds al-
low Shelter House and
community partners
like Wells Fargo to
work with victims on


learning how to budget,
save and build credit
scores through econom-
ic empowerment cours-
es. Shelter House also
works with the children
of abuse survivors so
they learn early in life
how to handle their own
finances.
While the programs
for domestic violence
victims are a major fo-

field early to stay ahead
of insects and disease,
problems. His chemi-
cal and seed dealers
help monitor his crops
for insects. Richardson
is passionate about the
good bug/bad bug the-
ory. Protecting benefi-
cial insects is a priority,
for example, using lady-
bugs for aphid control
in cotton. Richardson
has been using a bahia
grass / peanut rotation
in his fields since the
late 1990s, before it be-
came widely researched
and publicized to in-
crease production and
reduce pests. Most cur-
rently, the Richardson
farm has become high
tech by utilizing their
smart phones to receive
market reports directly.
Richardson gets two
reports a day from the
Chicago Board of Trade
to help him make deci-
sions on when to sell his
crops, planting progres-
sion in the area, and
other reports that affect
the market.
The Richardson fam-
ily has been working
with University of Flor-
ida, IFAS Extension for
years. Local UF Exten-
sion Agents and Spe-
cialists have worked
with Richardson over
the years trying out new
varieties of crops, scout-
ing for diseases and in-
sects, displaying new
advances in equipment,
as well as teaching other
local producers. Both of
Richardson's sons have
worked with UF Exten-
sion Specialists over
the years to gain more
knowledge for science
fair projects. Donnie is
very passionate about
agriculture and will


take the time to help ed-
ucate anyone about the
topic. Richardson helps
the Extension Office
by providing his farm
for variety trials and
farm tours both locally
and internationally. In
2003, a group of Roma-
nian businessmen and
women visited the farm
to learn about farm-
ing. equipment used lo-
cally to produce cotton
and peanuts. A group
of German tourists also
visited the farm for sev-
eral years to learn more
about American farm-
ing.
Richardson positive-
ly impacts agriculture
in many ways. This pro-
ducer yearly donates
funds, time, and knowl-
edge to local school sci-
ence fairs and Ag in the
classroom to support
and promote agricul-
tural projects. He hosts
the local Walton Coun-
ty beauty pageant final-
ists at his farm teaching
them about the history
of farming in the region
and the aspects of the
peanut industry. This
is to prepare the beauty
pageant participants
that are representing
Walton County at the
National Peanut Festi-
val in Dothan. He has
spoken- to local civic
groups promoting the
importance of agricul-
ture to our local econ-
omy. Richardson pro-
motes local agriculture
through various boards
he has served on. Don-
nie Richardson is an
advocate of agriculture
and new environmen-
tally friendly practices.
Thanks to'Mr. Richard-
son for all he does for
the agricultural world,


from Walton County,
and UF Extension.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30,2012
Walton County high school students

participate in regional Rotary Club

youth leadership training


By REID TUCKER
Public speaking and
heights were scary for
Walton High School
juniors Shae Lee and
Lazavier Caldwell
when they arrived at
the northwest Florida
Rotary Clubs' annual
Rotary Youth Leader-
ship Awards program
in April.
Fast forward to Aug.
22 and both Lee and
Caldwell, no longer
worried by speaking
in front of a crowd, (no
zip-lines were available
at McLain's Steakhouse
to test the second claim)
reported to DeFuniak
Springs' Rotarians that
three days of teamwork-
building exercises and
high-ropes courses in
the spring had the de-
sired effect.
The regional Ro-
tary Youth Leadership
Awards program, or
RYLA, held at Milton's
Adventures Unlimited
park between April 14-
17, involves immersing
students from around
the Panhandle in a re-
treat-style curriculum
of leadership training,


communications skills,
problem-solving and
community involve-
ment. Though lessons
were indeed learned,
Lee and Caldwell,
along with Paxton High
School's Christopher
Hammonds, said they
got something much
more personal out of
RYLA.
"I think every stu-
dent should experience
what we got to experi-
ence," Lee said. "It was
really hard to leave at
the end because we had
made so many friends."
Caldwell, a multi-
sport athlete at Walton,
said the physical chal-
lenges of the three-day
camp, including the
aforementioned high-
and low-ropes courses,
not only helped him
overcome personal fears
but also broke down the
barriers. between him
and the other students
from around northwest
Florida participating in
RYLA. What's more, the
lessons learned were
applicable in the every-
day life of an athlete.

helped me get past it.
[RYLA] really changed
my life. Now, even when
I'm playing football, I
know how and when to
step up and do what has
to be done to succeed."
Lee, Caldwell and
all other students who
attend RYLA were se-
lected after a lengthy
process involving nomi-
nation from teachers,
submission of an essay
and an in-person inter-
view. Nearly 20 appli-
cants from Walton and
Paxton High Schools
were received this year,
said Chuck Lawson,
one of the committee
members who narrowed
down the applicants to
the final three. All stu-
dents participating in
RYLA attend the pro-
gram free of charge, and
the money to pay for the
several-day stay is pro-
vided by fundraisers
the Rotary Club puts on
throughout the year.
Lawson said, in his
view, youth outreach
and leadership pro-
grams like RYLA are
among the most impor-
tant functions of the
Rotary Club at the local
level.
"We do a lot of proj-
ects every year as a club,
but I think the ones we
all get behind the most
are the ones that help
kids," Lawson said.
"These are the future
leaders of the world and
this community, and at
RYLA they learn things
they don't get in the
classroom. Leadership
is learned through life
experiences."

Window tint meters,

items that the Walton
County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) received this
year for participating in
the Florida Department
of Transportation's Law

grams in Florida. WCSO
has been involved with
the Challenge for the
past several years; how-
ever, for the 2011 year,
Walton County had ex-
ceptional numbers and
was awarded with free
equipment (totaling ap-


proximately $3,000 in
value).
The WCSO is look-
ing to use the equip-
ment given to them by
the Challenge Program
to ensure traffic safety
on all Walton County
roadways. Deputies
will be focusing even
more on impaired driv-
ing awareness, training
and enforcement. The
goal of this is to reduce
the number of alcohol-
related crashes and fa-
talities in our area.


Walton County Sher-
iffs Office also wants
to remind drivers out
there to pay attention
to speed limit signs, es-


pecially those in school
zones and construc-
tion zones. Remember,
these zones are being
patrolled by those look-


ing to protect the little
ones going to school to
learn, and their parents
who are building the

Results of study show effect of hearing loss on
anxiety, depression, self-esteem and well-being.
New research connects hearing loss with the development
of mood disorders and declines in key aspects of
mental function, including interaction with surroundings,
relationships, activities and feelings of self-worth. Hearing
impairment can lead to depression, anxiety, social isolation
and many other problems.
The good news is: there is help.
95% of all hearing loss cases can be successfully treated.
Beltone has been a leader in innovative hearing care for over
70 years. We recommend a FREE Hearing Evaluation by a
Beltone licensed hearing care professional.

Test Yourself Today
This simple quiz will help determine if you show signs of hearing loss.
1. Do people you talk to seem to mumble (or not speak clearly)?
2. Do you have a problem hearing on the telephone?
3. Do people complain that you turn the TV volume up too high?
4. Have you ever experienced ringing in your ears?
5. Are conversations in restaurants or crowded places difficult?

THE ICONIC BAR SLOPPY JOE'S, is world famous for drinks, the party

into the famous bar annually with bar merchandising rivaling bar sales.

Dear Auntie Em,

It's that time of year
again, hurricane sea-
son, and I, as usual, did
not get my supplies to-
gether in June. I spent
all weekend running
around like crazy, try-
ing to make sure ev-
eryone had what they
needed to be safe and
running myself ragged.
Why do I wait? I have
lived on the gulf coast
long enough to know
better. Any tips Auntie
Em, so I don't get stuck
like this again?

Windswept in Walton

Dear Windswept,

I understand, and
if it makes you feel
any better, you are not
alone. But, there are
some tips and tricks
you can do when June
rolls around to make life
easier into November.
First, go ahead and get
your container. I prefer
the plastic tubs over a
box. Makes it easier if
you have to carry it in
the weather as well as
safer if you put impor-
tant documents in it for
transport.
Next, every time you
go to the store for gro-
ceries, get a few extra
cans or dry goods, what-
ever you normally get
for your storm box and
put them in the box as
you put away the rest
of the groceries. If you
have an extra freezer or
room, store ice in con-
tainers or bags, and let
your ice maker continue
to make instead of hav-
ing to buy. It also keeps
your fridge and freezer
cooler in case of power
outages. Also, don't for-
get the pets and throw
in a few extra cans of
food for them each time
you shop.
Check flashlights and
battery supplies and ra-


dio. Make sure they are
working and make a list
on the outside of the box
listing what you still
need. Keep your yard
and outside area tidy
and you will also have
less to deal with during
a storm.
All of these little
things make a differ-
ence when pressed for
time and in a hurry.
Keeping copies of im-
portant papers, num-
bers and policy infor-
mation in your go-box
as I call it, allows you to
leave quickly and have
the information you
need with you.
The entire idea of be-
ing prepared is it is less
of a hit on your walletto
.gather items over time
and you feel more safe
and confident when you
have all your ducks in


a row when an emer-
gency happens. Good
luck, God bless and stay
safe.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30,2012


the night. Listed below
are some of the places
not to miss while vaca-
tioning, or just passing
through Key West:

Restaurants:
Camille's A breakfast/
lunch establishment
that caters to locals.
Their French Dip and
tuna fish sandwich,
have put them on the
map.
D.J.s Clam Shack the
best authentic lobster
roll on Texas toast to
be found on the island,
and for that matter
in the USA. Each roll
goes great with a bag of
sweet potato fries.
Mango's on Duval- The
conch spring rolls, a
combination of tender
conch and Asian veg-
etables rolled in spring
roll paper, lightly fried
and served with mango
chutney, are amazing.
But don't forget to order
the main course and
demand the tasty blue
crab cakes, flash-fried
and served with three
sauces.


The Half Shell Raw
Bar nestled at the
historic Key West port,
this non air-conditioned
locals hangout is the
perfect place to go, to
feel like a local. Their
specialty is the massive
pink Key West shrimp
and conversation. It is
not just the feel of sit-
ting on a porch restau-
rant/bar watching the
shrimp boats pull back
into the boat slips, it's
that you actually get a
feel of what locals and
those who harvested
the water, experienced
at the turn of the cen-
tury.
Hangouts/nightlife:
Sloppy Joe's Of course
you can't go to Key
West and Duval Street,
without stopping by
the world famous pub,
and getting a t-shirt,
with a side of massive
cheeseburger. Don't be
surprised if the lines
are long, and crowds
are loud, especially on
cruise ship days, but
you got to stop by and
check out history.

THE FLORIDA KEYS Eco-Discovery Center is
a donation-based facility that studies and educates
those about the fragile eco-system that lies just
underneath the ocean surface, surrounding the is-
land. With interactive exhibits and a live reef, visi-
tors can actually see the development and growth
patterns of the Florida coral reefs.


The Green Parrot The
oldest drinking hole
in Key West, the once
grocery store, funeral
home, and now bar,
has served hundreds of
thousands of locals and
tourists, for decades.
Finnegan's Irish Wake
- just across the street
from Sloppy Joe's, is
the famous Irish pub
where, even if you are
not of Irish blood, you
can feel like an Irish-
man. Well that's if you
decide to join the party
from the bottom of the
bottle up.

Points of Interest:
Southernmost point
- Looking like a huge
lobster trap buoy, the
historic and iconic land-
mark is the perfect
place to get a pic from
your vacation, located
at the end of Whitehead
Street. If the oversized
buoy doesn't grab your
attention, then just look
for the words, 90 miles
to Cuba."
Ernest Hemingway
Home and Museum -
step back in time and
take a glimpse of the fa-
mous writer's last years
as a world-renowned
writer, who made Key
West the place it is to-
day. Tour the home,
museum and garden,
also located on White-
head Street. Tours are
daily, from 9 a.m. 5
p.m.
Eco-Discovery Center
- located off the beaten
path, and away from
the tourist traffic, is a
center that is dedicated
to the conservation and
research of the natural
reefs that surround Key
West and adjoining is-
lands. The center is free,
(donations accepted)
and is open Tues Sat,
from 9 a.m. 4 p.m.
Duval Street- No mat-
ter if you are staying for
a week, or have lived
there all your life, Du-
val Street is the main
drag on the island. No
matter if you are want-
ing four-star dining, a

CRUISE SHIPS ARE A COMMON sight in the Port of Key West and a huge
economic boost for the city. More than 5,000 people every day the ships are in
port make their way down Duval Street and into the many shops, restaurants,
bars, gift shops and galleries.


Key West, or you want
to grab a tropical drink,
then get those feet to
the street that is the
center of nightlife, cul-
tural events, and people
gazing.
Key West Cemetery
Tours Be it a haunted
tour, or just walking
through during the day-
time, the city cemetery
is one spot not to miss.
With graves that are
all above ground and
all white-washed by the
sun, this is where totir-
ists can see the graves of
mobsters, city leaders,
artists, and common
folk, all side-by-side.
Key West Lighthouse
and Museum the light-
house, located across
from the Hemimgway
Home and Museum,
is the only one on the
small island and was
built in the mid 1800s
to ensure ships pass-
ing through the chan-
nel and around the tip
of the island of safe
passage. There is also
a museum that shows
the development and
purpose the lighthouse
served, for more than a
century.
Clarence Higgs Beach
Park County owned
Clarence Higgs Beach
Park is located on the
Atlantic Ocean adjacent
to the Waldorf Astoria's
Casa Marina Resort,
and comprises approxi-


mately 16.5 acres of
ocean front vista. Higgs
Beach Park is truly
unique on many fronts
as it hosts the only
shore-accessible under-
water marine park in
the United States and
is also the terminus of
the Florida Overseas
Heritage Trail, one of
only 31 nationally des-
ignated All American
Highways in the United
States.
Dry Tortugas Day Trip
- if you want to get
away from the hustle
and bustle of Key West,
then jump on the ferry
and take a 70-mile boat
ride, west of Key West
to the seven islands
that make up the Dry
Tortugas. The day-long
trip will showcase Fort
Jefferson, the nation's
largest 1800s masonry
fort. The island and
fort, are the center of


nature with bird sanc-
tuaries, turtle habitats,
and coral reefs.
Key West is one of the
most beautiful, histori-
cal and tourist-friendly
destinations, not only
in Florida, but in the
USA. With its southern
charm, its quaint his-
torical structures, lush
tropical landscapes and
gardens, and five-star
lodging and dining,
there is something for
everyone. Considered
worlds apart, while still
being in the same state,
Key West has become
not only a vacation des-
tination, but is fastly
becoming the home for
thousands that just
want to get away. For

travel, events, accom-
modations, and other
attractions of the city,

County schools nlaved with the Braves earn- junior varsity and var- quarter of play, one


sity competition while
Vernon held on for a 21-
19 win in Washington
County over the South
Walton Seahawks.
Walton and Free-
port arranged for their
junior varsity squads
to play the first half
against each other with
the Braves coming out
on top 14-0.
The Braves scored


via the ground game
and the other via the
pass. Quarterback Jace
Fielder hit Jalen Jones
with a 17-yard scoring
strike for the second
score of the night with
less than 30 seconds
left in the first quarter
of competition after the
Braves had taken ad-
vantage of a Freeport
fumble on their opening

possession of the game
to give Walton a short
field to drive for their
opening score.
The Freeport junior
varsity had trouble
moving the ball against
the Braves defense and
had a pair of.fumbles
end two of their four
possessions. The Bull-
dogs managed only 59
yards of total offense,
all on the ground, with
Alan Bartlett recording
a 37-yard run on the
last play of the half.
The second half saw
each team's varsity
take the field. Walton
caught the first break
of the game as Freeport
decided to go for a first
down on a fourth down
instead of punting
and quarterback Gabe
Moore overthrew his re-
ceiver to set Walton up
at the Bulldogs' 27-yard
line. The Braves needed
only four plays to cash
in as Daiquan Brown
got loose on a 14-yard
run to help the home
team. to a 7-0 lead with
2:24 to go in the quar-
ter..
Freeport stalled
again on their next pos-
session and Moore, who
also punts for Freeport,
tried to connect with
a wide open receiver
instead of following
through with a punt on
fourth down. The receiv-
er was unable to make a
play on the high throw
down the field and Wal-
ton was once again in
business on Freeport's
side of the field at the
34-yard line.
The Braves used five
running plays to up the
lead to 13-0 as quarter-
back Chris Kelly fol-
lowed his offensive in


for the score from six
yards.
Freeport needed only
two plays to respond as
Gabe Moore connected
with Nick Russell on a
50-yard pass play with
Owen Cole finishing the
quick drive with a 15-
yard scamper to cut the
lead to 13-7 with 9:46 to
go.
Walton showed their
own resiliency on of-
fense as running back
Amos Williams took the
pitch around the right
side of the Braves line
for a 65-yard touchdown
on the next play to push
the lead to 20-7.
Interceptions stopped
Freeport's last two
drives, the final toss
picked off by Braves
junior defensive back
Isaac Morrison who
promptly raced 56 yards
for a touchdown, avoid-
ing Moore's last-gasp
attempt at a tackle in
the red zone, for the fi-
nal margin of 27-7.
Walton was a benefi-
ciary of four turnovers
and two stops on fourth
down as the Braves lim-
ited the visiting squad
to 177 total yards on 51
plays. ,
The Braves rolled up
243 yards 6oi the ground
in four quarters of play
as they outscored the
Bulldogs 41-7 in 40
minutes of competition.
In Vernon, the Yel-
lowjackets put up the
first 21 points of the
game using their pass-
ing game and the tal-
ents of senior quarter-
back Dylan Kirk.
South Walton got
things going in the
second half as Bran-
don Whalen got loose
on a pair of touchdown
runs while quarterback
Johnathan Ortner con-
nected with Bishop
Waldrop on a 75-yard
touchdown pass to rally
the Seahawks to a 21-
19 deficit with two min-
utes left in the game.
The Seahawks were
unable to pull out the
exhibition contest but
gained valuable playing
time for both the var-
sity and junior varsity
units in preparation
for the regular season
openers scheduled for
this week.
Drew Pfeiffer had an
interception to stop a
Vernon drive and the
inability to convert an
extra point and two-
point conversion likely
stopped the Seahawks
from tying the game
and sending the contest
into overtime.

Issac Jackson ran for 207 yards and two touch-
downs and Keke Aguilar hauled in two touchdown
passes as Walton defeated Freeport 28-7 in De-
Funiak Springs to start the 2007 football season
under coach Lenny Jankowski.
Jackson struck on runs of 42 and 45 yards in
the second quarter to give the Braves a 14-0 lead
with Aguilar hauling in a 73-yard pass from Tar-
rell Bramlet to push the advantage to 21-0 after
three quarters of play.
Colby Thomas scored on a 1-yard run early in
the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 21-7 but Agui-
lar sealed the victory with a 5-yard reception mid-
way through the fourth quarter to lock up the vic-
tory.
Walton's defense held the Bulldogs to 158 total
yards on the night while the Bulldogs lost Logan
Caudill (who shared the starting quarterback job
with Cole Weeks) to a serious injury in the third
quarter of the contest.

High School Football Regular Season Opens Friday


By PATRICK CASEY
All three Walton
County schools will
open the 2012 high
school football sea-
son on Friday night as
Walton travels to Gulf
Breeze, Freeport heads
to Okaloosa County to
face Fort Walton Beach
and South Walton hosts
Baker.
Freeport has faced
the Vikings only one
time in football, last
year, in a 28-0 loss at
Steve Riggs Stadium.
The Bulldogs trailed
only 7-0 at halftime
but could get nothing
going on the night as
the host squad held the
Walton County team to
thee first downs on the
night.
Fort Walton Beach
got rolling in the second


half and ran for over
300 yards in the game
while totaling 424 total
yards.
Freeport managed
only 66 total yards in 48
minutes of action on 36
plays from scrimmage.
The Vikings return
six starters on each side
of the ball and quar-
terback Blake James
shared time at the spot
last season. He is ready
to take over the offense
and junior running
back Allen Anderson is
a physical runner look-
ing to have a breakout
season.
For Freeport to have
a chance at the upset
the Bulldogs must get
a big game out of quar-
terback Gabe Moore
and hope the Vikings
contribute turnovers to


keep the ball away from
their offense, otherwise
the game could get out
of hand early.
Walton faces a trip to
Gulf Breeze on Friday
as the Dolphins blasted
the Braves in the sea-
son opener last year
54-0. The Santa Rosa
County team holds a
13-9 record in the se-
ries and a 6-3 mark on
their home field. The
Dolphins have won the
last two meetings in the
series but will look to
avenge a 34-7 beating
by the Braves in 2003
on their home field.
Gulf Breeze lost 19
seniors that contrib-
uted heavily to one of
their better years on
the gridiron in school
history despite posting
only a 6-5 record and


losing to Wakulla in the
first round of the Class
5A playoffs.
This could be a very
close game if Walton
can force turnovers
and move the ball on
the ground against the
Dolphins. The Braves
did not have to throw
the ball much last week
against Freeport but
will likely need to do
so more against the
Dolphins to keep them
from stacking the line.
If both teams' defens-
es come to play then
special teams may de-
cide the outcome. A key
punt return or block or
a field goal could make
a winner of one of these
teams.
Baker owns a 6-3 re-
cord in the series against
South Walton with the

Last year Baker
pounded South Walton
38-0 in one of the bigger

be close if both teams
take care of the foot-

Baker returns four

the winner.

South Walton strug-

Following a busy
summer season of west
coast SUP racing, YOLO
Board Elite Team Rider
Ingo Rademacher can
now be spotted back on
ABC's General Hospi-
tal reprising his popu-
lar role of Jasper "Jax"
Jacks for a five week
cameo. Rademacher
just wrapped up a busy
summer season travel-
ing the west coast com-
peting in elite standup
paddleboard races in-
cluding the Molokai 2
Oahu World Champi-
onship, a 32-mile race
across the treacherous
Ka'iwi Channel between
the Hawaiian Islands of
Molokai and Oahu.
Rademacher finished
fifth in his age divi-
sion in the Molokai 2
Oahu and then second
in the seven-mile Wet
Feet North Shore WPA
National Race, also
in Oahu. He traveled
with YOLO Board elite
teammate EJ Johnson
to compete in both the
Naish Columbia Gorge
Paddle Challenge in
Hood River, Ore. and
the Quicksilver Ta-Hoe
Nalu Paddle Festival in
Lake Tahoe, Calif., both
long-distance races.
Rademacher is sched-
uled to race in the up-
coming Rainbow San-
dals Battle of the Paddle
in Dana Point, Calif. in
September and he has
qualified to compete in
the 17th Annual Hen-
nessey's World SUP/
Paddle Championships


in Los Cabos, Mexico.
"I've had an amazing
year both professionally
and personally," added
Rademacher, who wel-
comed his second child
in May. "Being able to
represent YOLO out on
the water and in races
has been a great expe-
rience, and I'm excited
to return to the Gen-
eral Hospital set to see
what's in store for Jax
and reconnect with my
GH friends and fans."
Originally from Ger-
many and raised in Aus-
tralia. Ingo has been
working as a US-based
actor for more than 15
years and now resides
in Oahu with his family
when not acting on lo-
cation. He hosts Camp
YOLO Board Hawaii;
an exclusive, week-long
SUP enthusiast race
camp on Oahu's famed
North Shore. The first
camp debuted in June
2012 and future dates
are currently being
scheduled.
"Ingo is a true water-
man and we couldn't
be prouder to have him
on our team," said Jeff
Archer, co-founder of
YOLO Board. "His pas-
sion and aptitude for
SUP shines through in
everything he does for
the sport and we con-
gratulate him on his
recent successes on the
racing circuit."

Judkins sue over decision to rehear appeal


SOUTH
WALTON/
VERNON GAME
Vernon victori-
ous in exhibition
game. 8-B


By DOTTY NIST
Holiday Road resi-
dents Mike and Shari
Judkins have sued
Walton County, mak-
ing the argument that
a decision made by the
county Zoning Board
of Adjustments (ZBA)
should be considered
final, aside from a chal-P
lenge of the decision in
circuit court.
I At a Feb. 23 hearing,
the couple had prevailed
in their appeal of Wayne
Dyess' administrative
determination regard-
ing a drywall business
that had located in their
neighborhood the previ-


ous summer. Dyess is
Walton County plan-
ning and development
services director.
Dyess had made the
determination that
the business, Creative
Walls, located in the
Coastal Center land
use category, was an
allowable use. The Jud-
kins' contended that the
business was industrial
in nature and did not
belong in the Coastal
Center neighborhood.
No one was present
at the hearing to oppose
the appeal on the part
of the business or busi-
Sness property.


Following a motion
for denial of the Judkins'
appeal of Dyess' deci-
sion, the ZBA vote was
2-5, resulting in failure
of the motion to deny.
This was understood by
the board members to
mean that the appeal
was granted. Respond-
ing to a question follow-
ing the meeting, Dyess
had commented that
the ZBA decision would
mean that the business
was considered out of
compliance and would
have to relocate.
The Walton County
Land Development Code
states that any appeal


of a ZBA decision must
be filed in circuit court.
However, there were
further developments
with the ZBA regarding
the Feb. 23 vote.
Toni Craig, who
came on board as Wal-
ton County attorney the
same month as the ZBA
appeal hearing, identi-
fied a procedural prob-
lem with the ZBA vote
in which the motion to
deny the Judkins' ap-
peal had failed. A vote
to ratify the decision
with an affirmative
motion was therefore
scheduled for the ZBA's
next meeting, which


was set for April 26.
When that meeting was
convened, Craig told
the board members and
the Judkins' that in her
opinion proper notice of
the item at the April 26
meeting had not been
provided, due to the
owner of the property
in question and neigh-
boring property own-
ers within 300 feet not
having been notified by
mail.
Craig's recommenda-
tions regarding notifi-
cation were a departure
from those in use by the

Motion to dismiss filed in Jones lawsuit


By BRUCE COLLIER
Counsel for Cecilia
and Jerry Jones has
filed a Motion to Dis-
miss in the lawsuit filed
against them by Mi-
chael R. Camacho, Case
No. 12-CA-660 in Cir-
cuit Court for the First
Judicial Circuit. The


two-page motion was
filed by Panama City
attorney Harry L Harp-
er on Aug. 9. on behalf
of both defendants.
The motion to dis-
miss is based on three
reasons. The first al-
leges that the plaintiff,
Michael R. Camacho,


lacks standing because
he is "not the party in
interest" in the action,
which alleges various
counts of undue influ-
ence, conversion and
unjust enrichment in
connection with the es-
tate of Camacho's de-
ceased mother, Laverne


Camacho. The proper
party in interest, says
the motion, would be
the estate of the de-
ceased.
The second reason
states that the lawsuit
makes "vague allega-
tions," rather than a
"short and plain state-

ment of the ultimate
facts" as required by the
Florida Rules of Civil
Procedure. The motion
states that the origi-
nal complaint refers to
"deposit accounts" and
"disputed sums" but
does not clearly iden-
tify them. The motion
argues that this lack of
specificity "fails to state
a cause of action."
Finally, the motion
states that the origi-
nal complaint does not
state a cause of action
on the count of con-
version, because "the
money sought is not a
specifically identifiable
body of money."
The original com-
plaint was filed by Mi-
chael R. Camacho in
July 2012. It does not
contain any allegations
of official misconduct
against Cecilia Jones, a
Walton County commis-
sioner, whose term ends
this fall.
According to the case
progress docket on the
Walton County Clerk of
Courts website, discov-
ery is proceeding on the
case, including a notice
of production. A hearing
has been set on Sept. 14.
The case has been as-
signed to a Santa Rosa
County judge, following
recusal of three Walton
County judges.

A Turquoise Beach
subdivision homeowner
has been approved for
a one-foot-six-inch set-
back reduction in re-
placing a porch on her
home.
The approval took
place at the Aug. 23
regular meeting of the
Walton County Zoning
Board of Adjustments
at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex
Heather Whitmore
of Walton County Plan-
ning and Development
Services presented the


variance request to
board members. She
explained that the ho-
meowner, Wendy An-
drews, had sought to
replace the old porch
and in the process had
discovered that it was
nonconforming with the
required 7.5-foot set-.
back for the east side of
the lot.
Walton County At-
torney Toni Craig add-
ed that the issue came
to light when Andrews
applied for a building
permit to replace and
screen in the porch.
Whitmore said that


in the opinion of county
staff the variance would
meet the county's re-
quirements as a hard-
ship, due to the narrow
lot (37.5 feet in width)
and the width of the
home (22.2 feet). She
added that the back
yard is accessed by a
sliding glass door, and
that an encroachment
on the door would re-
sult from a variance not
being granted.

The variance request
was approved as pre-
sented in a 6-0 vote of
the board.


Northwest Florida Ballet

elects south Walton man as

president of board of directors


Kevin Greene, a resi-
dent of Sandestin, has
been elected president,
Board of Directors of
the Northwest Florida
Ballet. Greene leads a
board charged with pro-
viding leadership and
Insight for the manage-
ment and growth of the
Northwest.Florida Bal-
let.
Northwest Florida
Ballet was founded in
1969 to provide train-
ing and performances
to the community, and
reach thousands of
school children through
public programs and
performances exclu-
sively for students. "It
really is a privilege to
serve an organization
so committed to the de-
velopment and educa-
tion of our children as
well as building up our
community's cultural
offerings" Greene says.
Kevin and his wife, De-
nise were ballet aficio-
nados in San Francisco
and Boston before mov-


ing to south Walton.
"When we moved
here full-time in 2006,
we began attending and
supporting the North-
west Florida Ballet. We
were 'knocked out by
the caliber of the danc-
ers and their perfor-
mances. We had no idea
that there was an A+
public school program
run by the Northwest
Florida Ballet, or that
our daughter would one
day audition for and be
accepted into the school.
Today she is one of 145
area students, one-third
of whom are from finan-
cially at risk families,
wearing uniforms, be-
ing challenged by a fine
academic program, and
dancing daily in a first-
rate pre-professional
program," said.Greene..
This year, the North-
west Florida Ballet is
initiating a pre-profes-
sional high school pro-
gram. Greene sees this
"as a fitting advance
in the same year we


KEVIN GREENE


will be celebrating our
10th Anniversary of the
Northwest Florida Bal-
let Academie. We want
everyone to feel wel-
come to attend our 10th
Anniversary Sept. 28
and 29."
Greene says he looks
.forward.to working with
the Northwest. Florida.
Ballet Board to expand
outreach to the commu-
nity 4o raise awareness
of the value of the arts
for full time residents
and visitors alike.

Federal prison for local woman


who filed fraudulent oil spill claim


Jennifer J. Lee (40)
of Destin, has been
sentenced to one year
plus one day in federal
,prison for wire fraud
as a result of her filing
a fraudulent claim for
losses from the Deepwa-
ter Horizon oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico..On
May 2, 2012, Lee pled
guilty to the charge,
admitting that she sub-
mitted a fraudulent
claim to the Gulf Coast
Claims Facility for lost


earnings at South Bay
Ace Hardware & Lum-
ber Company due to the
oil spill.
In pleading guilty,
Lee acknowledged
that on Oct. 7, 2010,
she. submitted a Gulf
Coast Claims Facility
form via the Internet
in an attempt to ob-
tain $16,500. Lee sub-
mitted documentation
to support this claim,
including a letter that
she wrote stating she


missed an employment
raise and commissions
due to the oil spill. She
also submitted a letter
purportedly signed by
her employer stating
she "was promised" a
raise and commissions,
but the oil spill had ne-
gated the ability of the
company to pay these
amounts. Between Oct.
S7, 2010, and Dec. 7,
2010, Lee placed seven
phone calls to follow up
on her claim. In those


calls, she complained
about the waiting pe-
riod because "everyone"
else was getting their
claimed money.
On Dec. 10, 2010, in-
vestigators interviewed
Lee's employer. When
confronted with the let-
ter he purportedly wrote
on behalf of Lee, her
employer informed in-
vestigators that he did
not write or sign the let-
ter. On Feb. 7, 2011, the
Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation interviewed
Lee at her residence as
a follow-up to this in-
vestigation. She admit-
ted to writing the letter
from her employer and


told the agents that she
did so with the intent of
taking it to her employ-
er for signature and no-
tarization. Lee told the
federal agents she went
to her employer's office
for this purpose, but he
was not there. Lee told
the agents that the of-
fice notary was there
and that the notary told
Lee to sign for her em-
ployer. The FBI agents
informed Lee that this-
sounded inconsistent
with the duties of a
notary, and Lee then
altered her story to de-
lete the portion involv-
ing the notary. Based
upon the investigation,


Lee never received the
$16,500.
In sentencing Lee to
federal prison, Chief
United States District
Judge M. Casey Rod-
gers noted how fraud
harms the entire com-
munity. Upon release
from prison, Lee will be
under the supervision
of the United States
Probation Office for two
years.
This case was inves-
tigated by the Federal
Bureau of Investigation
and prosecuted by As-
sistant United States
Attorney David L. Gold-
berg.

('-a Q tr~ L~: ~~ '2~~


~. \~P


With all the hype around the presiden-
tial election and candidates, it is no sur-
prise to see and hear ads an average of ev-
ery 8-10 minutes. But do Americans really
make their decisions on advertising, rather
than conducting their own research when
it comes to pulling the lever?


For the past six to
eight months, Ameri-
cans have been bom-
barded with political
ads, from both sides of
the political fence. From
negative business prac-
tices, and a woman who
died of cancer, to not re-
linquishing an Ameri-
can birth certificate and
being a communist, the
two sides of the politi-
cal spectrum and their
counterparts have tak-
en campaigns to new
heights, and new lows.
Most Americans have
had their mind made up
for months on who they
will be voting for in the
2012 presidential elec-
tions. But there is a
10-percent demographic
that is still undecided,
and this is the popula-
tion that the campaigns
. are targeting here in the
few remaining' weeks
before the big Novem-
ber day.
These ads, most pop-
ular being print and
television, are one of the
biggest ways that cam-
paigners seem to snag
their prey/voters. They
wait until all other at-
tempts have been made,
and then they make
their move on that par-
ticular demographic,
the independents.
This bloc of voters
is said to be the voters
who are either trying
to wait and make their
presidential voting deci-
sion at the last minute,
or who are trying to see
who influences them or
persuades them to take


the big leap. Either
way, the .political ma-
chine closes in quickly
and seems to direct all
their advertising and
ad dollars, to the cause
of convincing.
Throughout history,
politicians have used
various methods, such
as whistle-stop speech-
es, political advertising
and political rallies, to
Achieve their primary
goal, the winning of
votes. However, over
the years, politicians
have learned that it is
most advantageous to
use political advertising
to persuade voters.
Campaign spending
in the United States
grew 15-fold since
1952 from $140 mil-
lion to nearly $2 billion
in 1988. They say less
than 5 percent of cam-
paign expenditures in
1952 were devoted to ra-
dio and television time.
By 1972; 15 percent.of
campaign expenditures
were for broadcasting.
By 1988, about 20
percent of nearly $2 bil-
lion went to purchase
airtime. If you add the
salaries of media con-
sultants and advertis-
ing production costs,
at least 40 percent of
campaign dollars are
spent on media expen-
ditures in 1988. Dwight
Eisenhower's campaign
in 1956 was the first
presidential campaign
that relied heavily on
political television cam-
paign.
Because political ad-


vertising, unlike prod-
uct advertising, must
get results in a short
period of time, political
practitioners use sever-
al kinds of political ad-
vertising: image, issue
and negative advertis-
ing. Although there ex-
ists no tule in using po-
litical advertising, prior
to the 1980s candidates
usually used issue or
image ads at the begin-
ning of a campaign to
establish their positive
image and then used
negative ads at the end
of the campaign-to at-
tack the opponent.
However, those strat-
egies were abandoned
in the 1980s. A signifi-
cant trend in today's po-
litical advertising is the
increasing use of nega-
tive political advertis-
ing. In today's political
campaign, candidates,
either challengers or in-
cumbents, use negative
ads from the beginning
of a political campaign.
As we all know, that is
exactly what the cam-
paigns have turned to,
as seen in the 2008 and
2012 campaigns.
As of today's cam-
paign account, both
parties' campaign ex-
penditures have al-
ready totaled $6 billion,
and a recent study by
the research firm Bor-
rell Associates projects
that election spending
in 2012 will reach a
stratospheric $9.8 bil-
lion, vs. about $7 billion
in 2008.
Cable TV is the main
beneficiary of the an-
ticipated tidal wave of
campaign spending, as
inventory on the net-
works will most likely
be bought up earlier,
driving TV buyers to
spend their money else-'
where, according to Kip
Cassino, Borrell's exec
VP. The report esti-
mates that $468 million
was spent on cable in
2008 and that the num-
ber will roughly double
this year.
Ad breakdowns in
regards to negative and
positive ads for 2012
.are 78 percent negative,
and 22 percent positive.


In 2008, the breakdown
was 74 percent positive,
and 26 percent negative,
with both the 2008 and
2012 statistics focusing
on president-elect, and
incumbent President
Barack Obama.
With the RNC Con-
vention in full swing in
Tampa this week, and
with all the drama sur-
rounding the event, in-
cluding the invasion of
Tropical Storm Isaac,
and the DNC Conven-
tion about to begin in
Charlotte, N.C., stakes
and timeslots for adver-
tisement, are at a pre-
mium. This is the time
that pollsters and those
watching the indepen-
dent voters say they
will begin to really pay
attention.
Even with the numer-
ous debates that will be
scheduled over the next
few months with both
the current president
and Gov. Mitt Rom-
ney, and the current
vice president and Rep.
Paul Ryan, more voters
who are still undecided,
will watch political ads,
when it comes time to
make their decision. To
the surprise of many,
more people in the last
two weeks prior to the
elections will get their
voting info from those
commercials, rather
than interviews, the
conventions, or even
from the candidate ad-
dressing the country on
a one-on-one basis.
So despite the fact
those thousands of po-
.litical ads are bombard-
ing the airwaves, and
every time you open a
newspaper, or turn on
a television set, you see
the two candidates' fac-
es, outlining their plans
and spewing their nega-
tive attacks, remember
that some undecided
voter could be listen-'
ing and making up his
minds who to vote for
in November. And with
that mindset, that is
what the advertisers
creating and placing
those ads are hoping to
achieve.
So when it comes to
election day, and you

LIMITATIONS; PROPERTY VALUE
DECLINE; REDUCTION FOR
NONHOMESTEAD ASSESSMENT
INCREASES; DELAY OF
SCHEDULED REPEAL.-

Ballot Summary:
(1) This would amend
Florida Constitution Article VII,
Section 4 (Taxation; assessments)
and Section 6 (Homestead
exemptions). It also would amend
Article XII, Section 27, and add
Sections 32 and 33, relating to the
Schedule for the amendments.
(2) In certain
circumstances, the law requires
the assessed value of homestead
and specified nonhomestead
property to increase when the just
value of the property decreases.
Therefore, this amendment
provides that the Legislature may,
by general law, provide that the
assessment of homestead and


specified nonhomestead property
may not increase if the just value
of that property is less than the
just value of the property on the
preceding January 1, subject to
any adjustment in the assessed
value due to changes, additions,
reductions, or improvements to
such property which are assessed
as provided for by general law.
This amendment takes effect upon
approval by the voters. If approved
at a special election held on the
date of the 2012 presidential
preference primary, it shall operate
retroactively to January 1, 2012,
or, if approved at the 2012 general
election, shall take effect January
1,2013.
(3) This amendment
reduces from 10 percent to 5
percent the limitation on annual
changes in assessments of


nonhomestead real property. This
amendment takes effect upon
approval of the voters. If approved
at a special election held on the
date of the 2012 presidential
preference primary, it shall operate
retroactively to January 1, 2012,
or, if approved at the 2012 general
election, takes effect January 1,
2013.
(4) This amendment
also authorizes general law to
provide, subject to conditions
specified in such law, an additional
homestead exemption to every
person who establishes the right to
receive the homestead exemption
provided in the Florida Constitution
within 1 year after purchasing
the homestead property and
who has not owned property in
the previous 3 calendar years
to which the Florida homestead
exemption applied. The additional
homestead exemption shall apply
to all levies except school district
levies. The additional exemption
is an amount equal to 50 percent
of the homestead property's just
value on January 1 of the year the
homestead is established. The
additional homestead exemption
may not exceed an amount equal
to the median just value of all
homestead property within the
county where the property at issue
is located for the calendar year
immediately preceding January
1 of the year the homestead
is established. The additional
exemption shall apply for the
shorter of 5 years or the year of
sale of the property. The amount of
the additional exemption shall be
reduced in each subsequent year
by an amount equal to 20 percent
of the amount of the additional
exemption received in the year the
homestead was established or by
an amount equal to the difference
between the just value of the
property and the assessed value
of the property determined under
Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever
is greater. Not more than one
such exemption shall be allowed
per homestead property at one
time. The additional exemption
applies to property purchased
on or after January 1, 2011, if
approved by the voters at a special
election held on the date of the
2012 presidential preference
primary, or to property purchased
on or after January 1, 2012, if
approved by the voters at the 2012
general election. The additional
exemption is not available in the
sixth and subsequent years after it
is first received. The amendment
shall take effect upon approval
by the voters. If approved at
a special election held on the
date of the 2012 presidential
preference primary, it shall operate
retroactively to January 1, 2012,
or, if approved at the 2012 general
election, takes effect January 1,
2013.
(5) This amendment
also delays until 2023, the repeal,
currently scheduled to take effect in
2019, of constitutional amendments
adopted in 2008 which limit annual
assessment increases for specified
nonhomestead real property. This
amendment delays until 2022
the submission of an amendment
proposing the abrogation of such
repeal to the voters.

NO.5
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11,
AND 12
(Legislative)

Ballot Title: STATE COURTS.-

Ballot Summary: Proposing
a revision of Article V of the
State Constitution relating to the
judiciary.
The State Constitution
authorizes the Supreme Court
to adopt rules for the practice
and procedure in all courts. The
constitution further provides that a
rule of court may be repealed by
a general law enacted by a two-
thirds vote of the membership of
each house of the Legislature. This
proposed constitutional revision
eliminates the requirement that a
general law repealing a court rule
pass by a two-thirds vote of each
house, thereby providing that the
SLegislature may repeal a rule of
court by a general law approved
by a majority vote of each house
of the Legislature that expresses
the policy behind the repeal. The
court could readopt the rule in
conformity with the public policy
expressed by the Legislature,
but if the Legislature determines
that a rule has been readopted
and repeals the readopted rule,
this proposed revision prohibits
the court from further readopting
the repealed rule without the
Legislature's prior approval. Under
current law, rules of the judicial
nominating commissions and the
Judicial Qualifications Commission
may be repealed by general law
enacted by a majority vote of the
membership of each house of the
Legislature. Under this proposed
revision, a vote to repeal those
rules is changed to repeal by
general law enacted by a majority
vote of the legislators present.
Under current law,
the Governor appoints a justice
, of the Supreme Court from a
list of nominees provided by a
judicial nominating commission,
and appointments by the
Governor are not subject to
confirmation. This revision
requires Senate confirmation of
a justice of the Supreme Court
before the appointee can take
office. If the Senate votes not
to confirm the appointment, the
judicial nominating commission
must reconvene and may not
renominate any person whose
prior appointment to fill the same
vacancy was not confirmed by
the Senate. For the purpose of
confirmation, the Senate may meet
at any time. If the Senate fails
to vote on the appointment of a
justice within 90 days, the justice
will be deemed confirmed and will
take office.
The Judicial
Qualifications Commission is
an independent commission
created by the State Constitution
to investigate and prosecute
before the Florida Supreme
Court alleged misconduct by a
justice or judge. Currently under
the constitution, commission
proceedings are confidential
until formal charges are filed by
the investigative panel of the
commission. Once formal charges
are filed, the formal charges and
all further proceedings of the
commission are public. Currently,
the constitution authorizes the
House of Representatives to
impeach a justice or judge.
Further, the Speaker of the House
of Representatives may request,
and the Judicial Qualifications
Commission must make available,
all information in the commission's
possession for use in deciding
whether to impeach a justice or
judge. This proposed revision
requires the commission to
make all of its files available to
the Speaker of the House of
Representatives but provides that
such files would remain confidential
during any investigation by the
House of Representatives and
until such information is used in
the pursuit of an impeachment of
a justice or judge. This revision
also removes the power of the
Governor to request files of the
Judicial Qualifications Commission
to conform to a prior constitutional'
change.
This revision also makes
technical and clarifying additions
and deletions relating to the
selection of chief judges of a
circuit and relating to the Judicial
Qualifications Commission, and
makes other nonsubstantive
conforming and technical changes
in the judicial article of the
constitution.

APPEAL

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


ZBA for many years.
The Judkins' strongly
disagreed that notifica-
tion had not been suffi-
cient.
However, due to the
notification concern,
the vote to ratify the
earlier decision was re-
scheduled for the ZBA's
May 24 meeting, with
the notification proce-
dures outlined by Craig
to be undertaken. Sub-
sequently, when that
meeting was convened,
the item was again
postponed due to a full
board not being pres-
ent.
Then, at the June 28
ZBA meeting, repre-
sentatives of the prop-
erty owner and drywall
business came forward
to make the argument
that they had not been
notified of the original
appeal prior to the Feb.
23 hearing. Represent-
ing those parties, local
attorney George Ralph
Miller called for the
board to hold another
"full-blown hearing" on
the appeal, at which
all parties could make
their arguments to the
board members.
Creative Walls em-
ployees also testified
that they did not have
knowledge of the ZBA
hearing on the appeal
prior to the Feb. 23
hearing.
Bob Apgar, an at-
torney representing
the Judkins', countered
that the business owner
and property owner had
had knowledge of the
appeal---and that no-
tice had been provided
through newspaperpub-
lication according to the
requirements of county
code. He maintained
that the code requires
notification by mail only
when a change to the
land development code
is being considered that
would affect a property


owner.
The ZBA members
voted to rescind their
previous decision on the
appeal and rehear the
appeal at their Aug. 23
meeting. That hearing
did not take place due to
the Judkins' filing their
lawsuit on July 30.
In their lawsuit, the
Judkins' ask for de-
claratory relief to deter-
mine the legality of the
ZBA action rescinding
the decision on their ap-
peal and voting to hold
a second hearing on
the appeal. The lawsuit
also seeks to have the
court examine the legal-
ity of what is termed an
"after the fact re-inter-
pretation of the Code"
by Craig regarding the
notification procedures.
Among the exhib-
its included with their
litigation is a copy of a
Jan. 18 email, appar-
ently from then-Walton
County Attorney Lynn
Hoshihara to a county
staff member, stating
that she had spoken
with Creative Walls
and informed them of
the upcoming ZBA ap-
peal hearing.
The Judkins' seek a
court judgment "deter-
mining that once a final
decision has been made
by the (Board of Adjust-
ments), it is FINAL and
can ONLY be appealed
to the Circuit Court..."
They also seek re-
covery of fees, costs and
any other damages or
relief deemed proper by
the court "under these
very unusual and what
Plaintiff believes to be
unjust circumstances."

The case has been as-
signed to Walton Coun-
ty Circuit Judge Kelvin
Wells. There has been
no responsive filing by
the county at this time,
and no court date has
been set.
